Artist's Biography

Pamela Tudor is a painter and creator of three-dimensional shadow boxes. She works in acrylics and mixed media. Her expressive paintings focus on concerns about climate change and how Nature will always have the last word. Her art is about life in the anthropocene. Her shadow boxes transform found and recycled objects into something altogether new. After receiving an M.A. in Applied Psychology from New York University, she went to art school for four years, (the Art Students League 1975-1977 and the New York Studio School 1978-1980). Pamela has shown at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Fairmount Waterworks, the Marriott at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the Noyes Museum in Oceanville, NJ, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Emerging Collector Gallery in NYC. Her work is in private collections in NY, NJ, Philadelphia, Miami and Los Angeles. She is a member of InLiquid and The DaVinci Art Alliance.

Artist's Statement

My goal is to reach something deeply felt in the collective imagination. Even against the losses of our times: climate change and the dangers and hazards it claims on our lives and future generations; violence perpetrated on our living planet and each other— just two of many examples of these times. I find I still must create works of awareness, renewal, and beauty.

My connection to the earth and how we are destroying our planet and harming people, places and species preoccupies me. The beauty and desecration of our one-and-only sacred home is my theme. I call the work I have been doing for the last decade “Mother Earth: Lost Ice, Lost Trees, and “Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall”. Lately I’ve taken a deeper dive into the wisdom of trees and their inhabitants, the birds. It’s all connected.

As my work develops I find I enjoy the magic of skirting the line between abstraction and figuration. I use color, form, composition, movement and happy accident to tell a story in a visual language.

My 3-D shadow boxes have worlds contained in small spaces. I use repurposed, found, and broken objects in wooden boxes or drawers. In this process of recycling old, broken or found “stuff”, including my old artworks, the transformation into something altogether new takes place. This regeneration gives me contentment.

We still have much to cherish in our world, and much beauty. I hope to express that in my work. It is my way of communicating, visually, that we must pay attention, band together and say “yes” to being true stewards of our Mother, our Planet, our Earth, Our Home.
